Ok, I am new to the cosplay forum and I was just wondering if there was a old forum topic, or you guys could help.

A friend of mine though of doing a cosplaying sort of event and it is next week! I just need a link or something for Jill's RE3 holster straps! Got everything except those damn things. I don't want eBay product (yeti112 told me to stay away..^^!) or amazon OR ANYTHING THAT IS A ONLINE PRODUCT! Unless it has a store. ( I live in WI, like Gander Mountain or Scheels (did i spell it right?) or somewhere in the Appleton area).
Any of your help would be very much appreciated :heart:

Just not sure...:confused:

If you don't want to shop online, probably your only option would be to look in army surplus stores. You're looking for H-type suspenders in olive drab/OD and you'd probably be hard pressed to find some that look exactly like hers. I had to remove some stuff and sew extra webbing onto mine to get them looking similar to hers (but meh, I'm picky and it was bugging me).
You're also going to need a belt, same colour. Something like this (http://www.galaxyarmynavy.com/item-9045GROUP.asp) (that's actually the closest match to Jill's that I could find).

These (http://www.galaxyarmynavy.com/item-7045.asp) are the ones I bought, same seller, but I got them from their eBay store because they were a little cheaper on there. They do have a store...but it's in Brooklyn. But basically, that's what you're looking for.
There is usually at least one army navy surplus store in most towns, just ask if they have any and you should hopefully strike lucky :).

Thanks for the tip, my mother was going to the store anyway so I will ask her if we can go to the A.S. Store. I hope it helps!

P.S.
Maybe I'll order from that store, if it worked for you.
